CCTV images have been issued of a woman who police would like to speak to in connection with a theft from a car in Thanet.

A pair of sunglasses and some cash was reported to have been stolen from a vehicle in Biddenden Close, Margate overnight between Wednesday, January 22 and Thursday, January 23.

Officers have now issued three images and would like to speak to anyone who believes they know the woman pictured or who has witnessed suspicious activity in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/14167/20.

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or using the anonymous online form at Crimestoppers-uk.org

Inspector Julien Lawton said: “Following recent reports of thefts from cars in Thanet we would like to remind vehicle owners that there are steps they can take to protect themselves against opportunist thieves.

Remove any expensive items from your car and leave nothing on display, not even loose change.

Try to park your car in a well-lit area, ideally where it is covered by CCTV.

Before you leave a car unattended, even for a short time, make sure it is locked by trying the doors directly.

It is also important to store your electronic car keys in a signal blocking pouch so they can’t be scanned by criminals.

“If you see anything suspicious or believe someone may have tried to steal from your car, report it to Kent Police by calling 101 (or 999 if a crime is in progress) or online via www.kent.police.uk.”

    • I am inclined to agree – as the clothing differs and the facial image is completely blank – it could actually be anybody and the images are so poor they would not stand up as evidence in court.

      Anybody with CCTV should really check that their system is up to scratch and if it isn’t, then invest in a better one. These images are really useless !
